40k Imperial Guard Medical Field Dressing v2 by Light-Tricks 40k Imperial Guard Medical Field Dressing v2 by Light-Tricks
An alternate version of this piece here - [link] - trying to add a few more 40k elements and improve the design overall. The observant among you will notice the different forgeworld and serial number, however I think Sirona will be my go to forgeworld for medical stuff. (Sirona doesn't exist in canon, but look it up, I always like little references like this in my stuff).

Using the name of a celtic deity of good health and healing to name a forgeworld dedicated to medical advancement. Good idea.

Well -actually, it could be improved a little bit: you could have applied the purity seal directly on the parcel :) Historically, wax seals were placed like that -dangling at the end of a string or ribbon- when they were used as signatures: kings and such would press their signet ring onto the wax. But when the seal's purpose is to discourage tampering, it was usually applied in such a way that you couldn't open the package without breaking it.

Something very alieny and shamanastic, I imagine things like psychic healing crystals and arcane strangeness. I think there's even less fluff on this, so I could be wrong but I imagine they'd have healers rather than medics.

Tau would be the closest to having "realistic" human medical equipment and practices I imagine. Where I reign back the technology for Imperial stuff, hovering hovering WWI with some modern stuff thrown in, it's the Tau I'd give the really hi-tech stuff too, the "magic healing med-pack" some guard medics are suppose to have that I don't think suits them fluff-wise. I imagine their dressings and equivalents would be in hard plasticy cases rather than brown paper lol.

I don't think any other races would really do "battlefield medicine" in the same way... Orks have painboyz as a last resort, but other than that...

The 'Magic Healing Med-Pack' is sort of at the high end of Imperial tech... and it's not so much 'instantly healed' as it is a kind of applicant that can keep the patient alive and in something like good condition long enough for something more permanent to be applied. Sorta like Halo bio-gel. And also like Halo, it's rendered as instant healing in the games because that's much more playable.

"with the sister and other church related armes it can be like that and also more like middle ages medince just because."
So the comparatively elite, expensively equipped and also higher-class army has *worse* medical equipment? What? They're the ones I'd give the magic healing medkits to, if anything. Space Marines I imagine have something similar built into their armor, where it seals any wound they receive - because of the healing abilities of their implants, they don't even need secondary treatment. Of course, the Space Marines also use chain-scalpels, but that's probably just to show how hardcore they are.

Chaos' tech-base is basically the Imperium's. The more devout might opt for supplicating the Dark Gods to regrow daemonic matter onto their bodies; graft it on themselves; or, if they're Nurglites, not really care because Nurgle. Daemons are daemons, they are merely visiting the Materium, and cannot be done permanent harm.

The Eldar, I can see using psychic powers to heal a lot... but for actual 'combat medicine', I'm imagining their equivalent to a wound dressing would be, basically, a self-expanding quasi-plastic paste that grows itself into the wound to create an optimal covering, things like that. Very much 'high tech'. Of course, they can also control their own metabolisms to a much greater degree than humans, and could probably stop bleeding just by thinking it. After that, you can go with the psychic crystals that meld together flesh and what not.

Dark Eldar are similar to Eldar, since they have the same basic tech base, just more horrifying. They probably do have some kind of *vampiric* psychic healing, since using their own powers is somewhat riskier... or at least rarer. They also use grafted organs/flesh/limbs from their victims, instead of bionics or (slow) regeneration.

Tau are likely to use a lot of high-tech, sophisticated stuff, with spray-on bandages, microbots for repairing damage and treating infection, automated medical kits (the Tau 'medic' is probably a drone). They've even got (semi-rare) automatic medical systems that use nanites and metabolic control to mitigate almost all injuries in their battlesuits. Their medical technology must necessarily be broader, and probably includes a large computer database, in order to accomodate all the various species in their empire. They're going to go to significantly greater lengths to save badly injured soldiers than the Imperium, who will probably 'euthanize' anyone who won't recover quickly enough not to slow them down (depending on regiment/grimdark level).

Orks don't really need 'battlefield medicine', they're so hardy that they can keep going with all but the most dramatically lethal of wounds. After the battle, crude bionics, or grafts from any other Ork, living or dead, can be used to replace what they can't walk off (which is an awful lot. Eventually they can regenerate almost any injury, even lost limbs.

Necrons are made of a self-repairing... metal thing. Even if a body is damaged beyond repair, its engrams can be download to the Tomb and the body reassembled, good as new (ish). That said, they actually have a kind of specialized 'medic' in the form of Ghost Arks and Tomb Spyders, both of which specialize in repairing, restoring, and reclaiming damaged Necrons, albeit in slightly different ways.

Tyranids are designed to be expendable. They feel little in the way of pain, and can operate almost regardless of wounds. Lesser forms will be driven until they stop moving, and then promptly recycled. Gaunts, Gargolyes, even Raveners to an extent - the hive mind considers the loss of these nothing more the expenditure of ammunition. Greater forms (if their own healing mechanisms cannot recover within a rapid time frame) will be evaluated, and, if it deemed that the recovery and re-purposing of its resources is more efficient than the continued use of the damaged form, immediately recycled. Those forms with a degree of individuality (Tyrants and Warriors mainly) will promptly be reincarnated into a new node (body). That node may or may not be within the same battlespace, as needs dictate. It may or may not be in the same Segmentum, for that matter.
Genestealers, lacking ready access to reclamation and production facilities, have a considerable ability to heal, and can be observed 'regurgitating' an amber-like bio-gel that protects injuries and aids in healing. Though they are as expendable as any other Tyranid form, their 'behind enemy lines' nature means that their loss represents a significant mid-term loss of resources.

I'm... pretty sure that's all the factions?

well now that i think about it. about other race i imagine pretty much this

the eldar i can imagine like you say healing crystals,maybe runes and healing potions. the only thing don`t know and i ask is if the eldar use bionics, and if they don how they get way with that

the dark eldar for me use vampiric healing. that meants use pain from other to help themselves. for me suit perfect with the dark eldar way to do things

the sister of battle and other religius branch of the imperiun have sacred oils and other stuff.

and the chaos. well you have the caos apothecary or the local sorceres to do that. of course you will have another hand but well no everything if perfect

Damn, it posted in the wrong place. That comment was in reference to diego's attempted description of the Dark Eldar's practice of extending their lives by feeding off the suffering of others, thus potentially healing them as well.

I think it's in the older fluff that Eldar use bionics but integrate them better, there's also wraithbone too. It's also in some of the fluff that they can regrow limbs so no need for bionics (not sure what I think about that though).

Sisters of Battle I think of as being like the VAD or First Aid Nursing Yeomanry of WWI with a 15th century religious slant. They have the narcethium like the Marine Apothecaries, or a form of it.

well some guys say that in path of the warrior one eldar medite to heal themselvs. so also maybe they will use more oriental-looking ways to heal?

with the sister and other church related armes it can be like that and also more like middle ages medince just because.

is a shame with the eldar. see how the race is doom the will have a good medic tech

the imperiun is a large place so in depents so regiment will have the best of the best and other....well to bad from them

also the apothecary. you never look them healing, must of the time the just stay there until they extract the geneseed.


so in the end is the orks to all the race who we know the heal. so werid no?
